As you may have heard by now, Z. Hawass is no longer a Minister of Antiquities.
As he was leaving his office, a mob of 300 people attacked his car, threw rocks at it and wouldn't let it leave. Friends rescued him from his car and took him to an unknown location.
Later, 150 supporters demanded, from the Prime Minister, that the person who was to replace him be dismissed.
You can find a video of the attack on youtube, but the title is in Arabic, which I do not speak, so I don't know how to find it.
These facts, I know, are quite skimpy, but I'm sure we'll hear more later. Whatever your personal feeling are towards Z. Hawass, this action was terrible.
